Branch Arts presents Kate Daudy's Miracles, an online journey of reflections from lockdown
Branch Arts and Daudy will donate 10% of proceeds from the sale of work from I KNEW YOU WOULD COME BACK TO ME to UK for UNHCR to help families displaced by crises such as Syria, Yemen and South Sudan.

CHARLBURY.- Kate Daudy has been busy through lockdown reflecting on the everyday sublime. I KNEW YOU WOULD COME BACK TO ME presents phenomenon that have touched Daudy in a collection of multi-media artworks shown as a slowly observed online exhibition and offered for sale through Branch Arts.

Launched on 12 February to mark 2021’s Chinese New Year, the individual contemplations take us on a journey through Daudy’s experience of Covid19 in 2020. From a reflection on a stranger’s gift of apples to the deeper question of identity as represented by our unique fingerprint, Daudy uses her gift with written word to underline her understanding that human existence amounts amongst other things to the sum of what our thoughts make it. The artworks include a multitude of media, including sculpture, drawing, collage, textile work, film, performance, and written interventions.

I KNEW YOU WOULD COME BACK TO ME is being presented on the featured artist pages of Branch Arts and accompanied by texts by Dr Rebecca Daniels. Works are being offered for sale with 10% of every sale going to Daudy’s chosen charity, UK for UNHCR. Later in 2021, a small edition of artists’ books, designed by Herman Lelie and Stefania Bonelli and with an essay by Dame Marina Warner are available.

“The transience of life and the soul dominates Kate Daudy’s uplifting work. From street art that washes away, impermanent writing placed around a city to words applied to fences, stones and bridges around the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, much of Daudy’s carefully considered and poetic art is intended not to survive. She relishes the transitory nature of our existence on this earth, a love of the gesture for its own sake and her work embodies a rejection of consumerism.” - Dr Rebecca Daniels

Kate Daudy (b.1970) lives and works in London and is recognised for her work exploring the limits of language. Known for her written interventions in public and private spaces, Daudy’s work is based on an ancient Chinese literati practice of seeking to understand the universe through art and nature. Exploring the limits of language to create works that interrogate themes affecting humanity she occupies a space connecting artistic and scientific fields. Every piece by Daudy is highly researched and returns to her a passion ignited by Chinese studies and a profound interest in calligraphy and philosophy. Her observations have fed into an array of artistic disciplines including sound work, performance, interactive collaboration, photography, sculpture and largescale installation.

Daudy has had numerous exhibitions worldwide and is engaged in regular philanthropic and activist commitments. Recent highlights include It Wasn’t That at All, an immersive multimedia exhibition responding to Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, at Saatchi Gallery. In 2017, Daudy's piece Am I My Brother's Keeper? examined questions of home and identity in the light of the refugee crisis and has become a symbol for the work of UNHCR. Following its installation in St. Paul's Cathedral in London the works has been shown at Manifesta in Palermo, Manchester Art Gallery, Edinburgh International Festival and is currently touring Spain. Previous highlight installations include exhibitions for Yorkshire Sculpture Park, South Bank Centre, Bonhams, ARTCOP21 at the Eiffel Tower, Les Rencontres d’Arles, Centre Flagey in Brussels as well as city wide artist’s interventions in London, New York City, Manchester and Amman, Jordan.
